FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2016
On May 6th, 2016 law enforcement officers, elected officials, public dignitaries, family survivors, and the general public are invited to join together on Friday, May 6, 2016, to honor the 38 Montgomery County law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty over the past 130 years. The Memorial Ceremony will begin at 11:00 A.M. preceded with a procession of officers, retirees, and cruisers arriving at the ceremony site at Riverscape at 10:45 A.M. The keynote speaker will be Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor. The officer survivor speaker will be Clairton, PA, police officer James Kuzak Jr., who was shot in the line-of-duty while investigating a home invasion, and is paralyzed from his injuries.
Company 7 is hosting a Dinner Out night and instead of regular discount to L.E. and Fire, all you have to do that evening is ask to donate %10 on food items to our Memorial! It’s that easy. So plan ahead, and invite friends, family, and any groups you belong to to eat that Tuesday at one of the best BBQ joints period. Check out their awesome menu. http://www.company7bbq.com/
As we start the new year, the Board would like to thank all those who have volunteered on our committees to present the May Memorial Ceremony, and the individual Chiefs of Police and Sheriff who provided behind the scenes manpower and assets to make it happen. This ongoing support is absolutely essential to making our Memorial Ceremony one of, if not arguably the best.
Secondly, sponsorship is a big animal at times as it encompasses everything from providing water to hand out on a hot ceremony day, to support for our luncheon as donated by our friends at,The Grandview Foundation.
Many individuals and now groups have stepped forward assisting with partnership and we offer a huge THANK YOU for 2015!

Thanks again from the Board,
The 2nd Annual Officer Down Memorial 5K Run/Walk & Candle Light Vigil will be a night (low light) event in honor of Law Enforcement Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. All proceeds will go to the Montgomery County Law Enforcement Memorial Fund that will be used to memorialize law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty in Montgomery County Ohio. A candle light vigil will be held after the run to honor officers from around the country who gave the ultimate sacrifice to the communities they served. This event is open to the public and all ages are invited to attend. Pets are welcomed for the 5K, but please make arrangements for them if you are staying for the social hour immediately following the candle light vigil. Walkers are highly encouraged, but please dress appropriately (safely) for low light conditions.
Thanks to the folks at Dublin Pub, as they will host a Charity Silent Auction to benefit our Memorial Activities. This event will be ticketed, and more information will be sent out very soon. So mark your calender’s for February 15th, 2016. Tickets are $20 pre sale. No tickets will be sold at the door. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
The Montgomery County Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial is proud to kick off their web page, http://www.mcleom.com. We feel it is vital that we never forget the Brothers & Sisters that have fallen, while protecting us.
